A Scary Halloween Story (a poem)

Lee Kayser
2008 Chapter 1 - Observation


Halloween is near and it's scary here

As I roll into Washington D.C

Politicians are out, exercising their clout

Unashamed, for all to see.


"We're headed for hell if we don't pass this bill"

Was their frantic anxious scream

So they took out the fork and loaded some pork

To gather the pigs to the team


Maverick McCain vowed, "I‘ll change the game

I will veto all bills loaded up"

The bailout came by with a load from the sty

He marked ‘yes' and dropped in the cup


Barack is in lock with the Democrat stock

What we need are more taxes, you see

"Tax em' to hell  -- "That'll be swell

Then we'll go on a spending spree"


The people have spoken  -- the system is broken

Damn Politicians have their nerve

But we vote em' there, and so I will swear

We get exactly what we deserve


Decorations are out as I look about

Tombstones, coffins, a scary figure masked

Will our Constitution survive or be buried alive

Is a question I think should be asked



2009 Chapter 2 - Makes me blue


A full year has spun and Obama has won

And yet the corruption has spread

ACORN is funny and stimulus money

Has been doled out to the dead


Clunkers and health for spreading the wealth

Are now the things that we hear

We have emptied the store and they still want more

And bankruptcy is now a real fear


Government has grown by ‘The One' on the throne

At an increasingly frantic pace

I think I should mention - we should pay attention

Lest we be crowded out of our space


Do we now give thanks that we own the banks

And the business of building the cars

Are we led by the nose as we sleepily doze

Is freedom slipping away to the Czars


Nikita pounded his shoe -- said ‘We'll bury you

We will do it by working within"

The media blight is now far left of right

We should be aware of the spin


Esau the fool traded birthright for gruel

Therein is lesson to be learned

Will there come a day we give the Constitution away

In exchange for mere tax dollars returned


Let us rise from the grime -- I think we have time

To escape the corruption I see

If we just use our brain to get out of the rain

Would you like to join me for tea
